Tottenham Hotspur vs Marseille live stream, Wednesday 7 September, 8pm
Tottenham will mark their return to the Champions League with a home game against Marseille on Wednesday.
A late rally from Spurs (opens in new tab) in the second half of last season saw them wrap up a top-four finish in the Premier League at the expense of Arsenal (opens in new tab), their arch-rivals. The 2019 Champions League runners-up have thus retaken their seat at Europe's top table after participation in the Europa League and the Europa Conference League in the last two seasons.
Having been handed a favourable draw in the group phase (Eintracht Frankfurt and Sporting CP round out Group D) Spurs will fancy their chances of going deep in the competition just as they did in Mauricio Pochettino's final full season at the helm in north London.
One question mark surrounds Antonio Conte's record in continental competition, which is mediocre at best. The Italian is a world-class manager who has won titles with Juventus (opens in new tab), Chelsea (opens in new tab) and Inter (opens in new tab). His work with Spurs last season did not produce a trophy but was hugely impressive nonetheless.
However, Conte's teams have consistently underwhelmed in Europe. An intense operator, he has tended to fare better when his team only has one game per week to focus on. It will be interesting to see how Tottenham balance domestic and European commitments over the next eight weeks, when all six Champions League group games will be squeezed in to make room for the World Cup in Qatar.
Marseille have made an excellent start to the season under Igor Tudor, who took charge in the summer. They have amassed 16 points from a possible 18 in Ligue 1, conceding just three goals along the way - fewer even than PSG, who have let in four.
Tottenham will have to make do without Lucas Moura for the visit of the French side, while Bryan Gil is a fitness doubt. Conte has no fresh injury concerns after the weekend.
Kick-off is at 8pm BST on Wednesday 7 September and is being shown on BT Sport 3 (opens in new tab). See below for international broadcast options.

Use a VPN to watch Champions League football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee

A cheaper option and almost ExpressVPN's equal when it comes to quality, too. A single subscription covers six connections, so you can use it on mobile, laptop, streaming devices and more, all at the same time.
